Girapoggio - Cabernet Colli Euganei DOC

Typology: Organic red wines

Book a tasting
Austere, complex, time-consuming and emotional, surprising minute after minute with deeper and deeper notes.

The Girapoggio Cabernet Colli Euganei DOC is a wine with a full and persistent flavour, almost inscrutable at first taste.

The lean, limestone and difficult soil generates concentrated grapes. To accommodate the natural conformation of the terrain, we have planted our Cabernet vines “girapoggio”. The result is a long-lived red wine that combines the Typical herbaceous and spicy hints with warm and fruity notes.

Sensorial analysis

Our Girapoggio expresses itself with dynamism in the glass: the typical herbaceous and spicy notes of Cabernet are balanced by hints of ripe red fruit, leaving space for tertiary aromas of tobacco and cocoa. On the palate it retains a complexity coherent to the aroma, together with intriguing and persistent tannins.

History of an ancient vine: Cabernet

Cabernet Sauvignon is an international grape variety originating in the Bordeaux area of France. A wine of remarkable longevity, its structure and elegance make it one of the most popular varieties in the world.

Genetic studies have confirmed the origin of Cabernet Sauvignon from a cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. While maintaining its typical herbaceous and spicy notes recognisable, Cabernet is also able to best manifest the characteristics of its terroir. The richness of the Euganean soil, due to the combination of volcanic rock and limestone scales, gives our Girapoggio a solid body with mineral, tobacco and leather notes.


The structure of Cabernet Girapoggio makes it an ideal red wine for spiced pork chops, stews, duck in 'pevarada' (minced chicken livers, salami, anchovies and garlic) sauce and mature cheeses. We recommend uncorking the wine a few hours earlier and serving at around 18°C.
